EEX Press Release – EEX revises 2022 EUA auction volume for the common Europe-wide auctions

    The European Energy Exchange (EEX) has revised the 2022 auction calendar due to a revision of the Europe-wide EUA auction volume under the CAP3 contract in 2022. The change to the volume stems from a correction in the calculation of the deduction from the auction volume of the allowances to be cancelled pursuant to Article 6 of Regulation (EU) 2018/842 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The revised volume will become effective  from 7 June 2022.

    All other auctions – namely auctions for Germany, Poland, UK in respect of generation of electricity in Northern Ireland, as well as the auctions of EU Aviation Allowances – remain unchanged.

    This overview shows the current volume and the new volume as of 7 June 2022.
